I originaly planned for a Maiev/Warden model with a custom animation set, but after mdlvis destroyed my saved modelfile i've decided to rig the model with herobloodelf's animations. It performs very cool though.

This model is not compressed. Optimized version and other edits are available here.

Fitting effects:
Bottle of Poison Missile, Shadow Strike Upgraded and Imprisonment Spell.

    Here is a testmap that i always use for my unit models and unused glaive model (thanks to Happy Tauren for fixing it and to Proxy for making the mesh of fingers).

    Don't really have time to update the model in the nearest future, but i might do it at some point.

    Feel free to edit and use this model and it's assets however you want.

    UPDATE: added a placeholder version with Maiev's body and animations.

    The shoulderpads and helmet could use some more detail, they're a bit... Plain.

    Having followed the development of this, seeing what you were shooting for, this is... Quite interesting. I rather like it, though I agree that (even though it was intentional) the shoulderpads/helmet are much too plain.

    Well, maybe. The thing is - it doesn't look too out of place among other wc3 models (that's one of the reasons I uploaded a test map this time - the other is to simplify the work for mods and reviewers). And about contrast with the lower mesh - her body is darkened and covered by a cape, so it's not a problem either. At least in my taste. There are models that look far more distinct (not in a good way) from wc3 contents than this one, even while having a more consistent level of detail. Hell, some models look bad because of overwhelmingly big level of detail on texture.

    However I've heard your voice and maybe if I get to update this model (maybe I'm August or something) I will definitely try various ways to make those 'problematic' parts more detailed. I doubt that I will be able to coz' the quality of Warden texture, but il try.

    Thank you two for your opinions on the subject of armor.

    Seems way to plain, also the anatomy is all wrong.

    Would love to use this as Maiev but I think the animation don't quite fit being a melee. Otherwise it's a pretty great model. :)

    Edit: Give her a weapon too, please.

    There is no anatomy, really. She is shoulderpads with a cape, everything under the cape is hardly visible so i don't consider her body being a little bit overacted a problem. Noone should, actualy.

    Yeah, as i wrote in the model description - i was going for a custom animation set, but mdlvis corrupted my save. Maybe at some point in the future, but not right now.

    You could ask someone to attach this model's head and shoulders to Maiev, this might work as a neat option too. Ha-ha.

    The model really needs details... Also a weapon would be nice. Maiev/AnyOtherWarden is not a mage such as Kael (which means change the animations too).

    Pretty useful for WoW maps though.

    It ended up pretty well. The animations fit well, but you really need to do something with her attack animations. The current one don't really fit as we know Maiev is a melee fighter.

    Well, as it is it's more of a ranged magic throwing unit. However I've attached several versions where animations are adjusted for dagger throwing and even meele combat. I might just slap it's mesh onto Maievs bones as it was suggested by HappyTauren in the near future.
